Neil Gaiman on the Tim Ferriss podcast:
Part of what I discovered, particularly about being a novelist, is writing a novel works best if you can do the same day over and over again. The closer you can come to Groundhog Day, you just repeat that day. You set up a day that works for yourself.
This is incredibly difficult for me. I want to set up routines and habits and yet I don’t even find the time to attempt some organization.
